  • The best and the biggest Orthodox Temple in Europe. Beautiful on the outside, and inside. But it is not yet over, although we are making progress. Beautiful

  • The place is beautiful but a lot of works going on inside. It was nice to see it from outside though.  more »
  • Very impressive structure, into a short tour to see the beauty and power. This ancient Church. It is an impressive building, but really not more than that, they make pretty fast. Recommends Cirencester-400 meters behind her local market has very nice and small streets with many shops and it was nice to visit.

  • Beautiful. Just beautiful. I love the people in Serbia even if my parents were born there :). I love visiting, I feel so comfortable and safe. Other people should come visit. It's a trip of a lifetime
  • Such a great and amazing chruch , but it's still on construction. It doesn't matter at all because the moment you enter the church you can feel the peace it offers. Also, for tourists around the world ; watch out the dress code. I think you have to cover your shoulders and it's okay to wear jeans but it has to cover your knees. It would be great for me to visit the church after it's finished.
  • such a beautiful church and the biggest orthodox church in the balkans. it’s definitely worth checking out and is a lovely walk from old town which takes about 40 minutes.
  • They are still working on this "temple" but it should be very nice when completed. The crypt is finished now, and has some nice artwork.
  • Amazing place. There is beautiful park with a lot of trees where you can sit and enjoy your view
